AN ILONGGO boxer won the ABF bantamweight title after stopping his Indonesian foe at the Angono Rizal Gymnasium last March 9, 2019.
Denver Cuello of Cabatuan, Iloilo dominated Jack Amisa of Indonesia with a flurry of fists before going in for the kill in the second round where he floored his foe with a straight jab.
Cuello said his comeback shows that he still has the skills to fight inside the ring.
“I am just thankful to those who trusted me that I can still make a comeback even if I am away for four years,” he added.
The 32-year-old Cuello improved his record to 37-5-6 win-loss-draw, including 25 stoppage wins, while Amisa dropped to 21-46-2, with 14 knockout victories.
Meanwhile, Sonny Boy Jaro of Negros Occidental pounded veteran Indonesian fighter Boido Simanjuntak in just four rounds.
The pride of Silay City and a former WBC flyweight champion, crushed Simanjuntak with a series of punches to the body and the head until the match was stopped in the fourth round.
Presented by Highland and DMAD International Promotions in coordination with the Angono, Rizal local government, the boxing card was dubbed “Return of the Champions.”
